Quito, Ecuador. According to the decision taken by the IMC, it was not taken into consideration the request expressed by Jorge Romero Aguayo against the Grand Lodge of the Andes (recognized on 13 June 2014 by the United Grand Lodge of England). Jorge Romero gave up his desire to be recognized as Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Ecuador and Humberto Plaza Arguello was recognized as Most Worshipful Grand Master. Arguello pledged not to sue Jorge Romero.
Also, the Grand Lodge of Ecuador and the Equinox Grand Lodge of Ecuador have decided to share the same jurisdiction. The Equinox Grand Lodge submitted an application to join the IMC and the Executive Board approved the request and asked the opinion of the Commission of Information on Recognition.
